A Western TrioLarge Print - 2013
In Master and Man, Bobbie is a black man who can outride, outfight, and outshoot any white man in the mountain desert. His unwavering moral code serves as a model for his often cruel and dissolute white master. A Lucky Dog is a tale of desperate flight by a jewel thief named Hagger from the man he robbed. In Colorado, facing a battle with winter cold and snow, he comes upon an isolated cabin and its sole occupant, a weakened bull terrier left there to starve to death. The man and dog come to depend on each other, to the point where Hagger would make any sacrifice and endure any hardship just to keep the dog alive. In the title story, Red Fire, Paul Torridon, called White Thunder by the Cheyenne Indians, and his girlfriend, Nancy Brett, are being held prisoner by the Cheyenne because they believe he can cure illness and bring rain. While Roger Lincoln, a frontiersman who has known Torridon since the early days of his feud with the Brett clan, devises a plan for their escape, Torridon's captors take every precaution they can to keep him, even if it means that they will have to kill him rather than lose him.
